Abstract

© 2017 NOND of AEJMC. Researchers have long investigated error rates in news stories and their impact on media credibility. This new research explores spelling and grammar error rates in the digital era and their association with reported credibility. Results show basic errors in spelling and grammar persist in digital news; however, their influence on perceived credibility is not so straightforward.
